His(David Bohm) passion for truth carried him wherever it might possibly find nourishment, and his theories consequently reflect tremendous breadth and depth in accounting for a wide range truth that stems from a diverse spectrum of epistemologies.

The 3Ps blog is dedicated to exploring cosmology, quantum physics, and the domains of the very small and the very large with poetic expression of science concepts, philosophy, and history of ideas at the emergent consciousness level by using the "words of science."

Out from here
near the edge of the universe
clear of culture clutter
it's syllables my dear
wandering where
cosmic attractions
search for...the rest
The hologram universe

OEDILF - The Omnificent English Dictionary In Limerick Form

OEDILF - Topic

There is MTonnes of good stuff(plenty of not-so-good too) here, but this is the place to start from this blog. Avogdro's Number is a good one to start with.

Check out "quantum" content on Poem Hunter

There is all kinds of poems with quantum from Schrodinger's Pussy(get's you attention anyway) to Quantum Relationship which has a quirky way to talk about high energy relationships, hehe, hehe. from Alan Bender

Nested Noodle Theory

Cosmology is the study of the VAST hidden in Planck length boxes
A famished and horny graduate student staring into the pasta bowl on the next table
Created the nested noodle theory of the cosmos
As commonly happens before a good theory can be proven
The analogy was consumed by the diner who was closest to the origin of the vision.
The graduate student went back to laboratory and tried to regurgitate what he had seen
Surprise. Surprise. The whole damn thing was in his head, but his gut feelings:
Noodles were hollow wave guides, electromagnetic pathways for the cosmos.

He began to do the numbers, hoping for once he would find a fellow with a desire
Willing to take a chance on something new and rich in metaphor and good for a book
String theory or is that um-M-theory just Dr Greene
Courting the general public with one hell of a pick up line
But never getting laid in a way that brings him closer to the extra dimensional aspects of sex
Maybe he is trying to get on the Daily Show and I don’t mean Terry Gross
Posing his own questions and selling it like Red Bull Malt Liquor
To any damn fool that doesn’t have the money to get a degree but can read and push a broom.

Wave guides that direct light on routes billions of light years long just to get next door
What a waste for a Hubble telescope when a worm hole to the future is only a block away.
Einstein understood warped space meant out not up
It is worse than that out means away from where you are
If wave energy is the only way to receive your messages and gravity is a tube not a tension
Then it is “look where the guide takes you and don’t get off the tram unexpectedly.”
It could lead to a relativity expansion in the vicinity of no place
Which could be confusing if it was not an intersection but an open man hole to the next tube.

Miss Delectable Universe right over in the next building, so close you can smell her
Think of it like this; if the light had to take to walking the halls and stairs to get there
Over to the next building, you idiot, this is an analogy
Pheromones are represented by light in this story and go straight to the observer like fast
Light in the wave guide is only a messenger boy taking one Planck step at a time down the hall
By the time the messenger boy gets you the image she is an old crone but you don’t see it
You see the picture from long ago, well not you but your atoms in a some new eye
On the other hand if you sniffed you yourself would have smelled her in full bloom.

Pheromones through the worm hole to the next tube. Almost like a parallel universe idea
Not so fast buster, you are a wave creature who has only just learned to walk
You don’t even get the crone or get to look at her
You are pleasantly deluded into thinking that what you see is what your gonna get
It’s what wet dreams are made of, but when he woke in the morning he was still caught
In the nested noodle universe, which explains the plight too accurately for comfort
There is not a thing he can do about it, except dream and be assured
The spaghetti he barfed up likely will go down as a symbol of total, unapproachable reality.

MFA vs MBA When will science catch oN?

Listen to Dan Pink's Marcket Place's Commentary


The 3Ps (Portable Poetry Portal) site is all about infusing science with the right brain skills that humans can supply. In my opinion, poetry and science are the leading edge in scientific innovation, poetry provides the meta-language to move science to higher level. It has the capacity to move the average 21st century scientists to the level of creative genius displayed by the giants of late 19th and 20th century scientists.

Science Diction

Physics is the a form of insight and as such is a form of art.
so says David Bohm

Art interprets the visible world, physics charts its unseen workings.

The artist employs image and metaphor; the physicist uses number and equation.

So says Leonard Shlain in Art and Physics

What does poetry become
when the bond of reality and word is broken?

Singularity--a word without meaning
There is no way
So they say
Nothing can be something
everything never was or could be

OO U C 4 8 1 2 ok

Is Science Fiction About to Go Mad?

Only a small cadre of technoprophets is attempting to extrapolate current trends and imagine what our world might look like in the next few decades. “We’re staring into a fogbank,” Stross says, “and we literally do not know where we’re going, only that we’re going there very fast.”

So says Stross...................

..............So it goes . . .

Bye, by Bob

Why keep
carbon beings
doing respiration
alive, when silicon does not
need food?

Smart small
robotic guys
convert the sunlight to
motive power directly. We

not by
avoiding change—
we could forfeit death and
transform to solid state bodies

So what is Singularity Poetry


I don't know but look here

it has something to do with a black holes, event horizons, singularity, and falling into what Hawkings suggested to Penrose.

Science and Poetry

Science and Poetry

"Science and poetry! Who would have thought that these two fields had so much in common? Yet today major scientific institutions the world over boast ‘resident poets' - and science itself provides material in abundance for the poets of today."

Among the links on this page is The Ultimate Science Fiction Poetry Guide that has some excellent background on the intimate relationship between science and poetry--it ain't just a fiction.

Mathematics in Pop Culture-Fibonacci Quilt Spiral

A segment on Science Friday worth a listen.

It reminded me of a poem that I wrote a several months ago that gets at the same issues that are raised in this radio segment. I portrayed quilters in their roles as closet mathematicians and poets and end with a pop culture cliche to assure that no one misses the absurdity of a male science guy at a quilt show.

Fibonacci Quilt Spiral

Poems evolve like quilts
word pieces, color image, quiet dreams—
slowly, abruptly
together they go.
Sometimes they surprise you, tempt you,
leaving you anxious.
Does this fit? Is the color right?
Days pass.

Working evenings, rearranging,
small changes,
big change,
go back to the dream.
Let the pattern speak.

the message appears,
your fingers working—

transforming wisdom
exploding from familiar scraps.
